Firstly gmail wont let you send with a different from unless they are
friend acocunts in which case the other email addresses are buried in
the header. Secondly reliable and correct storage of the sent email in
the gmail archives. Thirdly some companies have all sorts of silly spam
rules which will detect "strange" header setups such as "friend account
smtp usage" and block your email.

It can only be cleaner and better to use the correct smtp server for the
correct email sender and is a must imo.
